They "transform cooking into art". This is a worthwhile dining experience (B+). It has a somewhat dark interior, square shaped design, with 8 hibachi tables in the exposed parlor's center that could easily sit 50 persons, There are also about 20 tables around the perimeter that can seat another 100 or so. A long well-supported bar is at the entrance,... More

My daughter wanted a hibachi dinner but it was too long a wait so we elected for a regular table and menu. The food was very good, the service great, but dang the restaurant was loud and it was mostly coming from the hibachi tables. On her request, we went back the next night for hibachi and we saw what... More

the service was very good. The food was good, especially the huge bowl of soup my friend ordered. I felt it was over-priced, but it was a really nice place. Full bar, drinks were okay, but expensive. it's nice for a special occasion.

Chef Victor, a true sushi expert, meticulously crafted plates of sushi that were brilliant, FRESH and delicious. Like the palettes of color he artfully presented, the maki splashed with flavors. The sashimi and rolls he prepared were exquisite, as was the service provided by Daj, the charming and beautiful waitress who professionally and patiently waited on me and many other... More

I have eaten here many times and it has always been delicious. I often go with my daughter when she comes to visit, We each get an avocado salad which has a generous number of avocado slices and their wonderful ginger dressing. Then we share a number of appetizers such as shrimp rolls, fried dumplings and a sweet potato tempura... More

Service was great. They accommodated special requests. Asked about any food allergies. Food was delicious. Cooked as requested and with a great, entertaining chef. When back in this area will come again.

Not only was the food awful, the waiter, James M., was the name on the ticket, gave us a check with a political statement that out of common sense I will not mention. It is not any restaurant business to pass out ANY such garbage. I will never set foot in any Koto restaurant and advise anyone that I know... More

We decided not to seat at the hibachi but instead on the regular table. Not too bad for the price of the sushi and roll. Service isn't great though
